will probably be in virginia one week from today. ken cuccinelli versus terry mcauliffe. even people who have voted republican forever say they are not going to vote for ken cuccinelli. who knows, miracles do happen in politics, but ken cuccinelli appears to need one. e.w. jackson trails by more than ken cuccenlli does. so the governor's race looks like a democratic blowout. that means the most hotly contested election might be the attorney general's race in virginia. in that attorney general race, it's republican state senator mark obenshane who's running against democratic state senator mark herring. and right now, they appear to be very close. the senate democrats lead 49-46. which means the race is pretty close to predict with any confidence. and that has caused republicans to see mark obenshane -- now mark obenshane, if he is elected will be famous for that. the last thing he is famous for, though, was what he did in 2009 as a virginia state senator. he introduced a bill that year which said if a woman in virginia has a miscarriage without a doctor present, she must report that miscarria

30 days. >> well, and ken cuccinelli, maybe he doesn't even want to win, reverend al. because, you know, he knows that the shutdown hurt his chances. he knows it was very, very unpopular in virginia. so what does he do? he brings in rand paul and marco rubio who both voted to continue the shutdown. so on the one hand, he made some noises about maybe it wasn't the best way to solve problems, blah, blah, blah. but he brings in heroes of the shutdown. >> but at the same time, cynthia, that he brought in heroes of the shutdown, he tried to have it both ways when ted cruz came into virginia. and the vice president and the democratic candidate that he's opposes terry mcauliffe, they linked ken cuccinelli to ted cruz. just listen. >> someone who wants to govern in what they hope to be a new tradition of ted cruz. you might remember ted cruz just gave us the shutdown terry just talked about. >> could you imagine if ted cruz, ken cuccinelli, and the tea party actually ran the virginia government? >> now, let's not forget, cynthia, just last month cuccinelli shunned ted cruz at even a photog
at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relationships are immoral, wants to ban abortions with no exception, and once said it's possible the president was born in kenya. and he's plunging in the polls. 12 points behind. so why is that? president obama was in virginia over the weekend with the answer. >> you've seen on extreme faction of the republican party that has shown again and again and again that they're willing to hijack the economy and the country and grind to a halt if they don't get 100% of what they want. now -- >> the extremists are hijacking the entire party and one year later they haven't learned anything. joining me now are joan walsh and cynthia tucker. thanks for joining me. >> good to be here, reverend. >> joan, the president talked about hijacking the country. a year later, they did not learn anything. >> it's been a lost year for the republican party. and we're really feeling it as we sit and watch what's going on in virginia. they've nominated somebody who is just a total extremist. they're blocking
point lead over his opponent ken cuccinelli. mark, you're the first read team, wrote about the race and position it what we're watching take place in new jersey as well. >> two things going on. on the one hand in the republican party, you have what is seen -- kind of playing out in virginia where republicans say we need to be a conservative party first and foremost. in new jersey, where chris christie is running for re-election, you end up having a different argument where chris christie who is conservative, is saying we need to win races first and foremost. almost electability versus ideology argument playing out. chris christie appears to be cruising towards re-election and ken cuccinelli is trailing mccalliffe. >> as exploring this as the 2016 proxy fight between clinton and christie. >> one of the reasons it's a proxy fight, a lot of people working on the terry mccalliffe campaign, there are folks who wouldn't play a big role in the hillary clinton for president campaign, on the other hand chris christie doing well in the exit polls with different demographic groups, what george
in new jersey and ken cuccinelli in virginia, the two republicans in the running have a lot to tell us about just what kind of republican can get elected these days. now, on the one hand, you have christie, who, if recent polls showing him clobbering his democratic opponent, barbara what's her name by a 19-point margin are any indication, it's the kind who wins elections. correction, the kind of republican who can win elections in a blue state that gave president obama 58% of the vote in 2012. now, on paper, chris christie is as conservative as they come. opposition to reproductive rights? check. he defunded planned parenthood and refused to fund new jersey state family planning centers. standing strong against marriage equality? check. he recently backed down from his efforts to block same-sex marriage from moving the forward in new jersey, but only after a long, long fight to keep it from happening. advancing economic austerity policies, check. opposing organized labor, check. suppressing votes by politicking a plan for early voting, uh, check. slashing public education budgets, chec
election. ken cuccinelli is getting a little help on the trail right now in fairfax from rand paul, because those are the people he needs. the latest poll has mccalliffe ahead by six points. >> visitors are able to check out the island that welcomed millions of immigrant to this country that was completely submerged when sandy churned through the harbor and without power for months. more than a million historical items are restored. >>> the state legislature begins a special session on the issue in just about an hour. advocates on both sides gathered outside the state capitol. in lawmakers pass the bill, hawaii would join 13 states in allowing gay marriage. >>> the sox took the lead in the top of the sixth thanks to the three-run homer, a touching moment when they held up plac d placards for stand up to cancer, with the names of those affected by the disease. game five is tonight and that is your news cycle. in the guest spot, we're supposed to trust the supreme court more than the political branches of government because it's supposed to pursue justice not politics. what if the court is i
